The photo of the United Artists and the other theatres further down Randolph Street was taken in 1960.

That picture sure stirs memories; Cinerama in Chicago would soon shift over to the McVickers, and I remember that “Anatomy of a Murder,” showing at the Woods, was rather controversial at its initial release.

Thanks for the positive comment on the photo which I shot on 35mm Anscochrome film. Sure wish we still had a few of those splendid old theatres to go to today. But on a positive note: the big screen digital presentations of late are getting better all the time.
